I haven't heard of any A5 392 failures, and I hope that it stays that way!

Good to know.
Hard to believe with all the testing under virtually any condition imaginable that something like this could happen.

You have no worries. The guide for the timing chain was originally hard plastic. Apparently the vibrations from the MDS kicking in (6-speeds did not experience any failures) wore on it and they cracked at the mount bolt holes resulting in the timing chain to go loose and break. They then had a nylon guide for a short while and then produced an aluminum guide with a nylon shoe or pad attached to it. No failures since. This is not an issue for your car at all.

I've been skimming through this thread with great interest.
I'll get to the point: I have a '15 R/T 8A that has a production date of 10-14. Is this problem confined to the 2009-2011 cars or is this something I need to worry about with my car? If I'm out of the wood on this issue what did they do to remedy this problem?
Sucks that this had to happen to anyone. Sure takes a lot of the fun out of owning one of these cool cars.

Still shows P01. I've tried many times talking to the dealership and they just keep saying "eventually it will go away".

Neither is the case.

LOL, well that sure took a long time. Regardless of some obscure legal ease you find, CPA firms don't make a practice of lying for their customers. You want to believe one way and nothing will change your mind so feel free.
My advice is to let it go.

"Provisions of the Sarbanes Oxley Act (aka SOX, SARBOX or S-O) detail criminal and civil penalties for noncompliance, certification of internal auditing, and increased financial disclosure. It affects public U.S. companies and non-U.S. companies with a U.S. presence. SOX is all about corporate governance and financial disclosure.
The Sarbanes Oxley Act requires all financial reports to include an Internal Controls Report. This shows that a company's financial data accurate and adequate controls are in place to safeguard financial data. Year-end financial disclosure reports are also a requirement. A SOX auditor is required to review controls, policies, and procedures during a Section 404 audit.
SOX auditing requires that internal controls and procedures can be audited using a control framework like COBIT. Log collection and monitoring systems must provide an audit trail of all access and activity to sensitive business information.
Sarbanes-Oxley also encourages the disclosure of corporate fraud by protecting whistleblower employees of publicly traded companies or their subsidiaries who report illegal activities. Section 806 of Sarbanes Oxley the Act authorizes the U.S. Department of Labor to protect whistleblower complaints against employers who retaliate and further authorizes the Department of Justice to criminally charge those responsible for the retaliation."
